would expect that nancy pelosi is going to be speaker again pretty soon. >> speaking at the house democratic policy retreat in virginia yesterday president obama looked into his crystal ball predicting the democrats will take back control of the house "pretty soon." the reality of democrats seizing the lower chamber is a bit more sober. house democrats need to pick up 17 seats to retake the majority, and according to politico, just four republican encome bents represent districts that lean democratic while 15 democrats will be defending their seats in areas that tilt republican. redistricting has not helped. the redrawn districts in 2010 left 109 republican seats more secure compared with just 67 democratic seats that were made safer. the 2012 election bore the fruit of those changes. the cook political report found that while house republicans won just 49% of the popular vote, they took 54% of house seats. the political reality, however, may matter more than the actual numbers. jeremy peters writes in "the "new york times"" house democrats are starting to appreciate a new politic

and keeping that focus, i would expect that nancy pelosi's going to be speaker again pretty soon. >> david, obviously, interesting comments of the president there and the first read team says despite and we all know this, the debate over immigration and what to do about gun violence in this country, it is still the economy and they write, david, just in part, there's been no bridging between conservative view of austerity by measures of cutting spending cuts and what the democrats see here. as the solution, especially with sequester. we know that the democrats certainly have their plan as we have been told. they want a 50-50 split of spending cuts and tax hikes. that's the plan democrats are leaning toward but this still really is about the economy and how to solve some of the immediate problems we have. >> yeah. i must tell you that i'm one of the progressives who agrees with the economist paul krugman on this. any time talking about deficits, we are buying in to the right wing mantra somehow deficits are killing the economy. look at great britain and doing with their austerity plans and

in washington. we have a health care problem. it cost too much. then we heard over the weekend nancy pelosi said on the chris wallace show, washington doesn't have a spending problem. do you agree that? >> no, i don't. i think washington has a tremendous spending problem. and the only way we're going to get the deficit in control is to cut spending and have comprehensive entitlement reform. it's unconclusionable to leave this kind of debt to our children and grandchildren and they would not have the same opportunities that we've had if we leave them with this extreme debt here. so we have to accept responsibility to do something about it. i think again that, what dr. carson was saying. >> steve: yeah. i know you're a democrat and you feel that way, but what about the members of your party in congress? it just seems like don, we love you, but we don't agree with that. >> i think there are many democrats democrats who do. if you look at president clinton's pen you're, his fiscal policy was much more to the center. >> steve: we thank you for joining us on this busy news morning. >> thank you. >> st

side of things we have nancy pelosi saying there aren't spending problems. where is the middle ground? >> the middle ground is you have to deal with this the way that you and i would deal with it at home. you can't do something for two months or five months or six months. you have to look out over ten years. that's why simpson bowles, you pick one. the alternative minimum fix, if you accommodate them in a thoughtful plan. sadly what congress and the president has looked at rosily is this month it's taxes on rich people, next month it's sequestration. it's not a way to do business. >> steve latourette, thank you for your time. >>> still ahead, we continue to monitor the big news coming from italy. who tops the list of those who could be the next pope? >>> plus we'll have reaction from clergy here in the united states. >>> and this afternoon congress will once again take up the violence against women act. congresswoman gwen moore joins me to talk about what made this not so controversial legislation political incendiary. yes she is, yes she is.

for immigration, one thing that nancy pelosi likes to tell and one thing i've seen personally on dlil, you'll get some of these republican businessmen from central part of california, arizona, texas, florida, and they all come here and say, hey, we need to fix this. at least for guest workers. if you take away these immigrants, as you have seen in alabama that had a very strict immigrant law, the crop product gets killed and profits go down. >> that could also be used as an umbrella to get some of the raucus members of house in line, and so far it's not a humanistic article or about the other. it's about cold, hard cash. look, keep your boat shoes firmly planted many the ground, because we're going to try and get you to talk to us about gun reform after the break. >> indeed. >> and after we come back, doubts grow about the possibility of getting an assault weapons ban passed in congress, but you would not know that from listening to president obama. we will examine the 1994 law and the case for a new legislative fight next on "now." ♪ if it wasn't for you ♪ don't know what i'd do ♪ i'd have

, and as a byproduct of doing that good work and keeping that focus, i would expect that nancy pelosi is going to be speaker again pretty soon. thank you, everybody. god bless you. thank you. >> president obama completing his statement to the house democrats, and right now on "draen mitchell reports" drone wars coming up on the eve of john brennan's cia hearing. the white house relents and turns over its secret memo. >> every american has the right to know when their government believes it's allowed to kill them. this idea that security and liberty are mutually exclusive, that you can have only one or the other is something i reject. >> but what about john brennan's answers on torture and secret leak investigations? the defense department on defense. the pentagon's top brass pushed back on questions about the military response in benghazi. >> are you surprised that the president of the united states never called you secretary panetta, and says how is it going? >> you know, normally in these situations -- >> did he know the level of threat that -- >> let me finish the answer. we were deploying

was lying to nancy pelosi. he was lying to the colleagues. and i think that's why he didn't have anyone defending him when he went down. >> right. >> i wonder what you make of new jersey senator menendez. nobody know what is to make of the story. there's two parts. whole allegation of prostitution. i have no idea what's going on there but a top donor in florida, his office was raided by the fbi last week. this guy under investigation for something and now we know that menendez made calls about medicare payments to this doctor. he is a doctor. medicare -- he made calls to medicare to try to get more reimbursement i think for this doctor. was he leaning on the feds, more than that? there's controversy for menendez and how do you think he's handled it so far and what do you think he should be doing? >> i think he's handled it pretty poorly. another aspect is the plane trips that he took down to the dominican republic on the private plane of the doctor in question. i think the plane trips cost nearly $60,000. >> right. >> for two private plane trips. the total net worth is under $100,000. h
